    With farmers' markets starting up again it is time to start a new thread for this year.

    Lincoln Square will again have Tuesday morning and Thursday afternoon markets starting May 3 and 5 respectively. Tuesday markets now run from 7:00 am to noon (rather than 1:00 pm previously). Tuesday markets are scheduled through November, Thursday through October.

    The grower lists have asterisks for vendors planning to attend May markets. Very few growers will be there in May. Mick Klug Farm and Dotson's Farm are scheduled for both markets. Josh Dotson raises a lot of herb and bedding plants in his greenhouse but probably will not have much in the way of vegetables soon due to the weather pattern in the last few weeks.

    Dave or anyone else: if you find a similar list of suburban farmers' markets, I hope you'll post it. I miss the big lists of city and suburban farmers' markets that the Tribune used to print.

    Why this summer’s best prices on produce might be at your neighborhood farmers’ market
    Unlike commercial farmers, organic farmers say they’ve largely been insulated from the impact of world events and that their prices will be competitive.
    It finally might be Henry Brockman’s year.
    As commercial farmers battle record-high fertilizer prices, seed shortages and huge spikes in gas and construction costs, Brockman — who has operated Henry’s Farm, an organic farm in downstate Congerville since 1993 — has been diversifying, rotating 650 crops and using his own methods without store-bought fertilizer.

    This year, he already has begun loading his truck with spinach and herbs as he does every spring and delivering his produce weekly to the Evanston Farmers’ Market.

    “Pretty much no matter what happens with the economy, it doesn’t really have any effect on me,” said Brockman, whose core business strategy is his CSA, or community-supported agriculture program, which delivers customers weekly farm boxes all season for one upfront fee. He also sells produce at the Evanston market.

    Seems like high fuel prices could be a factor for both farmers' markets and CSAs.

    Hi- Henry operates his truck that he brings to the Evanston market on vegetable oil that I assume he gets for free. He is the only person I know that comes to Evanston that does this though. I don't know how much Henry is bringing to market tomorrow though. He will have a lot more in two weeks. His CSA starts in two weeks. His sister Teresa is bringing a bunch of organic veggie plants up tomorrow. Her plants are wonderful.

    Chicago Tribune list of 57 markets is now on their web site. The list comes sorted by name of market but can be sorted by city or day of week. The market names have links to informational web sites, many of which seem to have very little useful information.

    We were out in Woodstock recently for their Saturday morning market - advertised as #1 in Illinois. Long on charm due to its town square location but I'm starting to feel like farmer's markets are starting to get homogeneous. Still early in the season so I'll reserve judgment until the veggies start to make an appearance.

    We were in Sicily several years back and they had a regular rotation of markets in various villages. They meant it literally because it was the same vendors moving from place to place (including mobile dairy and butcher trucks with sides that swung out to create awnings).

    Starting to feel like that's where everything's heading. Same faces in a different location.

    The Skokie Farmers Market starts on Sunday. I double checked because Saturday would be better for me....

    Just made my first trip of the year to the Palatine Farmers' Market. Always a lovely experience. This time of year, mostly plants for starting one's own garden or meat, fish, and baked goods, but also a few early crops -- asparagus and green garlic, both of which I got -- along with a potted sage plant.

    Also pleased to see a booth for the local history museum. My two loves -- food and history. :)

    For those people who go to the Ravinia market, I just found out today that K & K Farms will not be there this year. They will still be at Lake Bluff, Evanston and Libertyville. They are bringing strawberries to the Evanston market tomorrow.
